idea needs a lot more thought and consideration before anyone makes any decision we must be presented with all the details and we must have an objective picture of what's happening on the ground we must be certain. population is at the top of the agenda . these demonstrations by productive supporters are becoming move here on the streets of tripoli they're chanting slogans that gadhafi is the leader and he's going nowhere people here are confused and angry reaction from paris for many recognize the opposition those who have spoken to also say that they're afraid that if the situation logic dictates that i find sufficiently recognise the opposition it does not recognize the duchy people who are asking what france some seem to be reinforcements to the opposition now half way through a seventy two hour ultimatum i can't. believe this if he does so

7:07 am
where the lack of control of the country could have devastating long term effects. after the liberation chance the rattle of kalashnikovs is the most common sound in the ghazi ever since rebels seized weapons depots in eastern libya rifles became the ultimate symbol of masculinity that every young man in this city once one thing in common between more market are free and it forced the struggling town c.p.u. is a fascination with the arms believe in leader he developed a liking for kalashnikov rifle so much so that he even had an eight case food just seven munition plant built here in libya that runs these fun produced an hour hailing all across eastern libya on the frontlines and beyond young man with rifles have become a fixture on the streets of benghazi they're eager to show them off and often slap happy in their handling of the arms. hands or a soldier from the been the as
7:08 am
a garrison who joined the uprising says many of the stella rebels don't have any experience with arms but he says is made out by their passionate determination of see the. point until the last to the last drop of goldies on. the you've been ghazi is still living off of the revolutionary fever from dusk till dawn people congregate on the city's main square calling for gadhafi to go most of the factories are closed the only people still working a shop owners here is good no good no good. many people no people and public servants like these traffic police officers despite the loss of control over is to. leave here because the government continues to pay salaries to those employed by this the. yes i received my last paycheck about ten days ago but there is nothing to thank the duffy for myself it is just two hundred fifty hours without
7:09 am
i can barely support my family agitation and uncertainty of the last few weeks are already exerting their toll on public health in gaza a psychiatric hospital is now flooded with patients because preexisting conditions were exacerbated by the unrest nowadays because of the people uprising and lots of people suffering from the so-called banneker's shoulders. some of our mission old surviving relapses from their previous mental problems now because of the. uprising because of the shooting. was painted and ridiculed get doubtingly being the most valuable asset for the opposition movement as that hatred pulls people together for the time being it unites those who spent years serving in his government and the victims of this persecution yet their chance for free libya i get to be augmented by
7:10 am
a clear vision of how to achieve it very hard to try to determine who could be the real charismatic leader the real strong structure that could come in on the ground they could say well i am well known by. program some horizons and i will be able to achieve or to be the alternative again or that will help achieve better perspectives and a better horizon people in bin gazi are now living of their savings sharing whatever little they have most of them are confident that once again that the leaves the bright future will dawn on them but if past revolutions are anything to go by the abundance of our. and hordes of idly roaming men could mean exactly the opposite. some like art see in god. and in just over an hour a former british ambassador to libya talks about r t oliver miles tells us that
7:11 am
many of the stories coming from libya don't ring true to him with the real situation and talk of a no fly zone is premature here are some of what we'll hear coming up later. right from the beginning of the conflict in libya stories of attacks on civilian populations but i don't know of a single authentication case i think we've all probably had the experience i don't know so if we media correspondents are telephoning anyone they can find in libya and the story you get from everybody is we're right here where i am there's some shooting and it sounds nasty but i'm not going outside to look and yes i have heard stories of mormons but none of them in my area that seems to be the general picture so i don't believe it really i think is disproportionate force at the moment to talk about a blue fly zone. all talk of international involvement in libya is going to be tough to avoid for the u.s. vice president who's on day two of his visit to moscow russia has stopped arms
7:12 am
exports to libya but maintains its stance against military intervention or he's caterina's are about as the latest. russia despite backing un sanctions and since today halting all major military trade and transport libya has so far maintain the position that it is an internal conflict and all foreign powers need to stay back and let libyans sort this out by themselves however the united states has not ruled out a possibility of a military intervention and joe biden is certainly going to be trying to sound out the russian leaders on how firm their position is exactly on that matter of course libya and the current crisis was definitely not on the agenda when this visit was originally planned it was scheduled a long while ago joe biden of course has a lot of things on the agenda he talked a lot of business with russian leaders both russian president and the russian prime
7:13 am
minister focusing on trade ties with put in today joe biden spoke of necessary improvements in order to boost the current trade between the two countries and both the u.s. vice president and the russian prime minister agreeing that several very important steps have already been taken such as of course signing the start treaty by the russian and american leaders also the prove and corporation between russia and the coalition forces when it comes to of ghana's stand and the u.s. military presence in that country so a lot of progress but still of course a lot of work to be done both men actually spoke of possibly. relinquishing of these a regime between their two countries. it would be. russia u.s. relationship if we work for. the u.s. and russia. and russia. are
7:14 am
feeling pretty good but mostly the talks were just business there is a lot of business of course potentially for the two sides to investigate and invest and that is exactly what joe biden was doing here in moscow. hearings will soon be underway in the u.s. congress over the radicalization of american muslims are being led by homeland security chairman peter king who says there are vital to the protection of the nation but as are his marine important i reports congressman king wasn't always so negative toward the muslim community. on friday. a familiar sound of worship echoes from the islamic center of long island. zero zero it's a place of prayer education and community service for many of long island's seventy thousand muslims it's also a place where u.s. congressman peter king spent years building bridges with american voters.
7:15 am
supporters who today remain shocked that king leave build their mosque a hotbed for extremism that should be put under surveillance he has attended a lot of beddings old snow and we have been to his office many times whatever we needed help with. how deep ahmed is chairman of the long island center that sits just outside the boundaries of king's third congressional district. fears the man he once fundraise for may currently be the strongest force fueling the flames of islamophobia in america safety and security of my community is my biggest concern and trying to create probably. why i've been doing these things during his early days as congressman king was often seen at the islamic center on long island giving lectures holding book signings even serving as the main guest of honor when the prayer officially open official say since september eleventh two thousand and
7:16 am
one the u.s. representative has not stepped one foot inside this building these lawn of center unanimously condemned the event but can cut ties with the institution after two officials were quoted denying muslim involvement and linking israel to nine eleven . instead peter kate recently appointed chairman of the powerful house homeland security committee has announced congressional hearings on a legit hit in radicalism among american muslims and mosques. a drastic turn that has brought fear to king's constituents these are allies. and allies in every way and in a way that will not serve as a shield or. even outside of my states it has been very disturbing especially when the coalition of muslim population in the
7:17 am
long island community is growing substantially looking for support. congressman king has said that most muslim leaders in this country aren't cooperating with authorities yet no member of this long island islamic center has ever been accused of terrorism. muslim americans in this community are appalled that their very own u.s. representative is targeting them based on their religious belief there are extremists in every every community every religion i mean you know why just islam what it's you have to gain from it their personal vendetta or maybe something to do and in the politics there's a lot of fear people are really angry anxious because to because the burden falls on our shoulders can really explain explain all three in a country of tolerance a new york community left feeling isolated and marginalized by the man they once

7:22 am
street which is being named as one of the most expensive streets in the world and possibly if you hang around long enough you might bump in to one of these billionaires because seventy nine overshoes billionaires currently reside in moscow making the capital home to more billionaires in any other city in the world knows he said much of the world has been generated by the scheme in commodities and listen steel company has seen it also turns almost pretty financial crisis levels and this is part of what's contributed to say many russians are doing so well in the polls which this year. now i mean to discuss the fat cats finances it better iris is editor in chief of business news magazine thanks ben for coming in so how do you rich people becoming wealthier despite all the economic downturn that is pulling everybody else down but us thing is pulling everyone else. i mean it continues to grow i mean we've got four percent growth predicted for this year and actually growth is accelerating i mean during the crisis we had we went from seven
7:23 am
percent growth to seven percent contraction but underlying that's i mean i was bracing because this is not working underlying that the average incomes of russia have increased throughout the crisis so people now are actually wealthier than they were at the beginning of this whole and they're continuing to shop i mean in many ways it benefited some of the russian companies who saw there was a massive trade down to cheap crude but of course cheap russian foods so companies like magnet the supermarket chain actually had a record year in two thousand and. thirteen said i think greece or investment plans have become hugely profitable and the guys who are running decent domestic businesses are the ones that are really benefiting from crisis but in what way other russian tycoon similar to the global it stuff up billionaires around the world they're becoming more. difficult it's part of the process i mean when the soviet union collapsed the first round of money was made from simply capitalizing on the distortions you know you can find soviet union for a dollar
